John Adams to Demonstrate Watercolor in Free Session Saturday

John Adams

In the second of three Artist’s Insight sessions this month, watercolorist John Adams will paint a Pacific Northwest inspired landscape while sharing specific color mixing techniques and an introduction to design principles and elements. The event will take place this Saturday, July 15, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at BAC.

John is one of three featured artists in our current show, Translucent. The exhibition includes glass artist Tiffany Thiele and watercolorist Mike Biskup.

Says Adams, “This work represents my current interest in using watercolor lightly mixed, saving the white paper as part of the design and creating an area of interest or attraction in each work. I paint the things I am most attracted to—light falling on a variety of subjects from the mountains to the coast, along with florals, are favorite inspirations for my work.”
